My sister said it well on her Facebook status. "Being raised by a single mom, Father's Day was often just another day in my house." Now, for those that don't know the story, my sister and I have the same father. He was pretty absent in both of our lives (moreso in hers). So, I've never really thought of this day as a big deal either. She does find some positivity in it by citing her husband and other brother Tony as great fathers. (I can attest!). She goes on to say, "They have shown me how wonderful fathers can (and should) be." Word.
I certainly have some friends who are great fathers. But, still...all I really get out of it is the letters and emails I receive anonymously each year that simply state:
My mommy says you're my daddy."
Well, I was pretty wild in the 90's and 00's. Stay tuned...
